Xanax Purple Football Ifa

KR Says:

Is a purple football shaped tablet with IFA on one side and a thick score line on the other a 1 mg Xanax? Is that the drug manufacturer? Please help, I am only used to seeing alprazolam tablets come in blue or white.

This is a pill from a Mexican Manufacturer, other people that have purchased it from Mexico said it is a 1mg Xanax, but I am unable to confirm that with any certainty.

I tell u what, I've been a certified tech for 6 yrs. 1mg xanax, i've had them in a light blue w/ a score in the middle. i switched mgs bc the xanax bars my pharmacy were dispensing were GREEN WITH ONLY 3 SCORES = 2MG XANAX. So my doc didn't like the fact that if i broke those three pieces up and mixed them around I would be getting a different dose just about every time [the way the GREEN bars were=the 2 ends=0.5/and the middle is 1mg]. anyways, so i got 120, 1mg, but when i got them they were really dark, just about purple, Manufacturer=Qualitest and the pill marks are2089 w/ a strange V on it.

From what I have seen this pill is supposed to be a 1 mg Alprazolam (the purple/bluish sort of speckled oblong pill with IFA one one side and a score on the other). They are manufactured in Mexico by a company called INVESTIGACION FARMACEUTICA, S.A. DE C.V. and go under the brand name FARMAPRAM. Here is a Spanish Information Page which describes the medication and provides more details about the manufacturer. Hope this helps!

I agree with you about the 2 and 5 mg pills they are football shapped and the purple & blue are basically the same. But I unberstoog 1 white or yellow is 2.5 a oarnge is 5 mg and the blue or purple (depending on the manufacturer) are 10 mg I have ffriend who has taken the three moving up in strength. But now and why I am responding to this one is because now they have moved her to a green football shaped xanax and I am not sure on the mg's. But every time he changes them though it is going up. And the purmple and blue are by differant manufactures. My friend goes to one Pharmacy and get purple looking ones then another month go to a differant Pharmacy and get the blue ones. But as I asked, do you know waht the green ones are, what milligrams.

Verwon Says:

Scott, with no markings on it, it is going to be difficult to determine what they are, the imprint is what would allow us to check if they are real and what they contain.

When you order from a foreign, online source, without a prescription, that is one of the hazards of doing so, there is no way to know if you are actually getting what you ordered, because their medications are not regulated as strictly as those in the U.S. and Canada.


Is there anything I can help with?

The green footballs are 1 mg's, they are distributed by Safeway in the town I live in. Walmart distributes light blue round ones that are generic xanax but are also 1 mg. The purple 1 mg's are new to me..they just started showing up in our small town and to my knowledge they've been brought up by a couple who bought a bunch when they were in Mexico. I have a question tho..does a 1 mg Lorazapam (Ativan) have the same strength and affect as a 1 mg xanax?

Verwon Says:

candyland, while there are Xanax tablets the colors and stuff that you described, the color and shape alone does not designate them as containing Alprazolam, it is the markings on the tablets that tell what the active ingredient(s) is. In this case, there are also other tablets on the market, including over the counter products, that are also available in those shapes and colors.

However, if you have more specifics on the IFA marking, any details you can provide on them would be very much appreciated. Sometimes, when a pill is new to the market, it can take awhile for it to be listed in the update drug databases, so this site doesn't always have it right away.

Can you post back with more details?

And as to the Ativan/Lorazepam and Xanax/Alprazolam, yes, they are equivalent, so 1mg of one is the same as 1mg in the other.

Re: Breezy (# 88) Expand Referenced Message

The Purple 1 mg "footballs" have been sold in the U.S. and are of fine quality. If you see these without a number stamped on it, throw the pill away. If the pill did not come directly from a pharmacy, you are playing with danger no matter what color it is. A lot of misinformation in this Xanax/Alprazolam forum, in fact some of the posts here were from the pre Fentanyl days, a lot of counterfeit Xanax is now mixed with poison in 2023.

I don't think you can? While Xanax can be administered intravenously for certain procedures, you would never find 10 or 20 mg doses. Oral Xanax is available and Xanax can be absorbed through other bodily entry/exit points. Here's what the Mayo Clinic says:

For oral dosage forms (solution, tablets, or orally disintegrating tablets):
Adults—At first, 0.25 to 0.5 milligram (mg) 3 times a day. Your doctor may increase your dose as needed. However, the dose is usually not more than 4 mg per day.

See the following prescribing information below

If it states UPJOHN 90 it is the legitimate brand.

Found mostly in Portugal but also Canada.
